Tips for driving in bad weather conditions
Which routes are gritted in Gloucestershire?
What about local roads?
You can email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if a grit bin is empty, or has been vandalised. Please provide the exact location, name of road, any landmarks and the grit bin number (if it has one).
Help your local community by using the grit bins provided to help keep pavements and side roads clear. Use a spade or shovel to spread the salt evenly and thinly across the pavement.
Please do not use grit from these bins to clear your own driveways or paths - we only have limited salt stocks, and you may be prosecuted if caught stealing salt for private use.
For more information see Gov.uk tips for keeping pavements and public spaces clear of ice and snow.
